Lion. Ox. Man. Eagle. A City. Part 16.

From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher

To: His Jewels. His Precious Jewels,

. Malachi 3:17 Amplified. And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of Hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him…

. When He cometh, when He cometh, To make up His jewels,

All His jewels, precious jewels, His Loved and His own,

Like the stars of the morning, His bright crown adorning,

They shall shine in their beauty, His Loved and His own.

 

. He will gather, He will gather, The gems for His kingdom,

All the pure ones, all the bright ones, His Loved and His own.

Like the stars of the morning, His bright crown adorning,

They shall shine in their beauty, His Loved and His own.

 

. Little children, little children, Who Love their redeemer,

Are the jewels, precious jewels, His Loved and His own.

Like the stars of the morning, His bright crown adorning,

They shall shine in their beauty, His Loved and His own.

Wm. O. Cushing.  George F. Root.

. Have you ever studied the process of finding, then forming precious jewels? the more precious they will be, the deeper they are hidden. the more precious they will be, the more pressure, the more heat, the more compressing, the more extensive, precision cutting, the more years it takes, the more refining they require.

. this is only a type, a picture in the natural of what the true picture is in the Spirit. the precious things of the earth are only the copy, of the truly precious in the Spirit. only a copy of the real, original thing that goes on in the Spirit. nothing in the natural, no matter how costly, diamonds, ruby’s, gold, sapphire, pearl, every precious, costly, rare, beautiful, shining, stone, can compare to the original in the Spirit.

. all of the most precious jewels of the earth, are a cheap imitation in the earth, compared to the real, the original in the Spirit.

. do we think that He builds His city, paves His streets with earthly gold? do we think that His gates are earthly pearls? do we think His city’s shining is natural jasper? clear as earthly crystal?

. No, my dear, costly, precious ones.

. we are His jewels. hidden. found. bought with a great price. dug, hewed from the quarry. refined. through the fire and the flood. formed. into His image.

. then built up.

. into His city.

. He builds His city with us.

. together, we are His city.

. He dwells in the midst of us.

. forever.

  1. Selah! The City of Peace. Those coming through the fire and pressure, through the Spirit, the true building blocks.
    It is all just one thing: it is Christ.
    If we can see it, the city nears completion. !!!
